"AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment."
"Its primary objective is to precisely define global units (systems, series, and stages) of the International Chronostratigraphic Chart that, in turn, are the basis for the units (periods, epochs, and age) of the International Geologic Time Scale; thus setting global standards for the fundamental scale for expressing the history of the Earth."
Interactive tool from the EPA. This facility-level data provides a "bottom-up" accounting of the major sources of GHG emissions associated with stationary fuel combustion and industrial processes. Well over half of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are accounted for in this facility level data set, including nearly complete coverage of major emitting sectors such as power plants and refineries.
"This website is an educational resource that describes the science behind volcanoes and volcanic processes. The site is sponsored by NASA under the auspices of Project ALERT (Augmented Learning Environment and Renewable Teaching). It is intended for the education of university students of geology and volcanology and teachers of earth science. "
Development of the animations has been possible with the support of CSIRO, the Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship and the Australian Climate Change Science Program, a program funded and administered by the Department of Climate Change.
"The goal of the PALEOMAP Project is to illustrate the plate tectonic development of the ocean basins and continents, as well as the changing distribution of land and sea during the past 1100 million years." Award winning older site by Christopher R. Scotese.
"Earth Science and news from the Geological World.... created to provide the community with cutting edge news, events and research, essential reads and links- an excellent source of information for those working in the diverse sectors of earth science and geology!"
"EM-DAT contains essential core data on the occurrence and effects of over 18,000 mass disasters in the world from 1900 to present. The database is compiled from various sources, including UN agencies, non-governmental organisations, insurance companies, research institutes and press agencies."
"The Geo-Guide is a subject gateway to scholarly relevant websites in earth sciences, geography and mining maintained in cooperation by the: Goettingen State and University Library University Library "Georgius Agricola" Freiberg."
GEOLEX is a search tool for lithologic and geochronologic unit names. "The National Geologic Map Database and GEOLEX are managed by the USGS's National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program in cooperation with the Association of American State Geologists."
"These pages provide pointers to GIS companies, associations, and government web pages as well as sources of software, data, publications, and services."This page is authored by the U.S. Army Geospatial Center.
Powered by NOAA, this center provides “scientific stewardship, products, and services for geophysical data from the Sun to the Earth and Earth's sea floor and solid earth environment, including Earth observations from space.”
Professional Development for Geoscience Faculty at Carleton College, these links display resources in a variety of geoscience topics and you'll find classroom activities, syllabi, images, animations and more.
by the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College, this is a portal into the rich geoscience education content available through dozens of independent project websites. It includes a search interface spanning all the projects, and a set of site guides which highlight key resources within these project websites.
Changes in the global environment (including alterations in climate, land productivity, oceans or other water resources, atmospheric chemistry, and ecological systems) that may alter the capacity of the Earth to sustain life. The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) coordinates and integrates federal research on changes in the global environment and their implications for society.
The USGS estimates that several million earthquakes occur in the world each year, but many go undetected because they occur in remote areas or have very small magnitudes. The USGS now locates about 50 earthquakes each day; 20,000 a year.
"The Electronic Volcano is a window into the world of information on active volcanoes. From here you can find many types of materials on active volcanoes worldwide, such as maps, photographs and full texts of dissertations and a few elusive documents. The Electronic Volcano will guide you to resources in libraries or resources on other information servers."
The Center provides a database of earthquake information with a search engine to find additional Internet resources. A special section lists up-to-the-minute Internet resources regarding worldwide earthquake activities.
Supplies information on the location and size of most earthquakes that occur worldwide, collects and disseminates an extensive seismic database, and pursues an active research program to better understand earthquakes.
Links on right side of page give access to sites on volcanoes and volcanic phenomena, using remote sensing images to provide near real time currency. Offers interactive experiments, interviews, and teaching resources. This site is sponsored by the NASA Oregon Space Grant Consortium and housed in the Department of Geosciences at Oregon State University.
"The World-Wide Earthquake Locator aims to provide up-to-date information and detailed dynamic maps of earthquakes across the world within a maximum of 24 hours of their occurence. This web site also includes a database of past earthquakes, an animation of the past month's earthquakes, and statistical earthquake prediction.
The purpose of NASA's Earth Observatory is to provide an accessible publication on the Internet where the public can obtain new satellite imagery and scientific information about our home planet. The focus is on Earth's climate and environmental change.
"The NODC archives and distributes global oceanographic data and information. The data is used to preserve a historical record of the Earth's changing environment for ocean climate research, and for operational applications."
"With more than a century of exploration and discovery in global sciences, Scripps Institution of Oceanography is the world's preeminent center for ocean and earth research, teaching, and public education."
PaleoNet is a listserver-web site system designed to enhance electronic communication among paleontologists. While primarily assembled as a resource for paleontological professionals and graduate students, PaleoNet welcomes input and participation from anyone and everyone interested in the study of ancient life
Pennsylvania Spatial Data Access (PASDA) is the official public access geospatial information clearinghouse for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and has served for twelve years as Pennsylvania's node on the National Spatial Data Infrastructure, Geospatial One-Stop, and the National Biological Information Infrastructure.
